After the announcement in March, although necessary, we were disappointed to have to postpone our regular sessions with Rose Cottage care home.
Once we determined it was safe, we found a way to continue visiting residents at Rose Cottage. South Square held a series of outdoor performances, from the Rose Cottage garden. On Wednesdays, residents get ready in the conservatory to see the visiting musician or performer. We’ve had some dance and movement sessions from Bryony Pritchard and Chemaine Cooke, local musicians; Andy Abbott, Toby Brazier, Ian Tothill and Lucy Barker. Plus, Heritage Activity Trainee Chloe devised a reminiscence session all about ‘The Traditional Sweet Shop’ which was a sensory stroll back in time to Thornton’s sweet shops.
